Information of early Proprietors and tenants are difficult to find due to lack of records. We have some information covering 1860's up to 1930's. More recent information is alo hard to come by. As more names and information comes to light, they will be added.
The Proprietor from at least 1860 – 1930, looking at available valuation rolls, was the Earl of Rosebery.
In the 1869 valuation he is named Archibald Philip Primrose 5th Earl of Rosebery 1847 – 1929, married to Hannah Rothschild who inherited her father’s fortune in 1874 to become the richest woman in Britain. She died of Typhoid at Dalmeny House in 1890 aged 39. Their second son Neil Primrose died from wounds received in action during WW1, in Palestine in 1917, leading his squadron of the 1st Royal Buckinghamshire Yeomanry in the 3rd Battle of Gaza.
